    For $379 CAD, it's a great bass.

    The Ash body is nice and light, and the Universe models get a set up in Japan before being shipped out to dealers (or so the story goes). The hardware and electronics are basically on par with a Vintage Modified or Sire bass, the latter of which mostly gets its "added value" from the active preamp (and endorser name).

    Go for it. It's the best bang for buck out there

    But shipping and 13% tax makes it more closer to $500
    Alot of money for me.

    Just so you know, I bought a Bacchus Craft from Canada that is on par with a high end MIA Fender. For me, better in terms of build and playability. I believe you can get them for around 650 or so in USD and the import tax for me was around $50.

    I 2nd the Craft series but never played a Universe series... Agree with @AngelCrusher in that the Craft series is on par in build quality and playability with US Fenders. Good luck!
